One election projection made by the media has been right – we are days in and no one knows the results. Sure, there are projections, but we still do not have a final answer.
The sad part is that many American Christians are playing into the chaos. Some have placed their trust in a projected winner. Others have decided that all of our freedoms and hopes are gone. The saddest part about this election is not who wins or loses. The saddest part about this election is misplaced trust.
The most disturbing aspect of this election is that many Christians are trusting in parties and candidates. When their candidate or party wins the election they have a false sense of security. When their candidate or party loses they lose hope. When the party of choice wins, God is blessing America. When their party loses God is judging America, and we are beyond hope.
Let’s remember that it is Jesus’ robes that say, “King of kings and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:16). He is not giving those robes to another. Let’s remember the nations, including the United States, are a drop in the bucket compared to God. Let’s remember He establishes rulers then breathes on them and they wither (Isaiah 40:17, 22-24). God has set His King in Zion, and His name is not Biden or Trump. His name is Jesus (Psalm 2:6). He will judge the nations. He reigns forever (Isaiah 9:6-7).
Please, Christian, whatever you do, “Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation”
Please, Christian, remember, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes” (Psalm 118:9).
Please, Christian, do not trust in Biden or Trump. Instead, “…trust in the name of the Lord our God” (Psalm 20:7b).
